Octodad: Dadliest Catch (PS4) review

Modern games, more often than not, task you with killing. Whether it's humans, animals, robots or aliens, your main objective is to wipe them all out. That's not even a bad thing, it's just we've seen it all before. The situation and characters are different, but the core gameplay is exactly the same. Imagine a game in which you kill nothing at all, and must simply complete mundane, everyday tasks. Thanks to the creative geniuses at Young Horses, Inc., that's exactly what we have, but with a twist. You play as an Octopus, or Octodad, masquerading as a normal human man with a wife and two kids. It's one of the most bizarre concepts ever, but does it work? Read the full review below to find out.

Hitman GO review

The Hitman series is one of the longest running franchises in modern gaming, and has graced our games consoles for well over a decade, but it never really took off like some of the others. Tomb Raider and Assassin's Creed are a couple of examples that come to mind that achieved a higher level of critical and commercial success than Agent 47 ever did. That's not to say they are bad games though, the gameplay just didn't feel quite as polished as it could have done. Now, Square Enix have released a spin-off, mobile game, and it's unlike any other game in the series. Read our full review below to find out why, and if it's worth your time.
